Skoda teases one-off Mountiaq pick-up
Skoda has teased its one-off Mountiaq pick-up based on the Kodaiq and built by students at the Skoda Vocational School…it will be revealed in full in June.
Skoda has been running its vocational school for more than 90 years with apprentices, under the supervision of Skoda engineers and designers, allowed to produce their own concept vehicles since 2014. And the one-off Kodiaq-based Mountiaq is the student’s latest creation.
Due to be revealed in June, Skoda has teased a handful of images of the vehicle being built. More than 30 apprentices have worked on the Mountiaq which will be finished in Orange Sunset, be fitted with a winch at the front, 17-inch Rockstar wheels, an illuminated loading area and updated sound system.
The first job saw the team reinforce the vehicle’s body after removing the whole back section and thus its structural integrity. They then crafted a new rear window and rear panel, and shortened the front doors. A mount for the winch was engineered as was a functional tailgate. The Mountiaq runs a 2.0TSI engine making 140kW, gets a roof-mounted lightbar and bulbar and an air intake snorkel.
“The name Mountiaq perfectly conveys a sense of adventure and the unique off-road properties of this powerful pickup. I am incredibly proud to have been given the opportunity to participate in this unique project,” said Petr Zemanec, one of the trainees.
Skoda will reveal the student-built Mountiaq in full in June.
